Good Quality Sleep May Build Healthy Hearts
National Public Radio

Are you getting enough sleep, or not enough? If your answer to either of these questions is “yes,” you may be at risk of heart disease.

Just the right amount of good-quality sleep is key to good heart health, according to researchers at the Center for Cohort Studies at Kangbuk Samsung Hospital and Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine in Seoul, South Korea. Poor sleep habits may put you at higher risk for early signs of heart disease, even at a relatively young age.

The researchers studied more than 47,000 young and middle-aged men and women, average age around 41, who answered questions about how long and how well they slept.
